The New Trailer for Salmon Fishing in the Yemen


CBS Films has debuted the new trailer for Lasse Hallstrom’s Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, starring Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor, Kristin Scott Thomas and Amr Waked.

In the adaptation of the Paul Torday book, opening in theaters on March 9, Britain’s leading fisheries expert (McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Blunt) to help realize a sheikh’s (Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert. He immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable, but when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Thomas) latches on to it as a “good will” story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
